A good practical joke if you live in a dorm or have a roomate is the following. Before your roomate gets up in the morning you arrange to set all the clocks in the house ahead by one hour. Choose a time of year such that one hour ahead will still be light out or dark out depending on the time of year. This is most likely to occur in mid summer – light or mid winter – dark. Usually winter works best because people are more sleepy in the winter.
Your roomate will awake when their alarm goes off. Seeing all the clocks in the house ahead they go about their normal routine. When they get to school no one will be there! Its been known to work however choose your victim wisely.
A friend of mine had a very loud voice. As we were driving he would spot someone keying the lock on their own car or house. He would shout in the loudest voice possible: "HEY YOU …. GET OUT OF THERE". The funniest part is that it worked. People would jump and look guilty as if they were breaking into their own homes!
A couple of friends of mine used to do a funny prank wherein they would wait until someone was walking into some area they were unfamiliar with. The would blurt out a curt "It’s a bathroom" … and the more times than not the person being pranked would dead foot stop and turn around.
This page is a tribute to a good friends first visual basic application in the mid 1990’s. At the time I had a copy of VB5 and had a total mind block as to how it worked. You see I was accustomed to old style coding. Windows uses a type of coding that is “event driven”. Often when I have a mental block such as this I go to this friend and many times he breezily picks up the stuff. At that point I usually go aha! THAT’S what they mean and through monkey see monkey do I go on my merry way. Thus I want to make it perfectly clear I am not the author of FartMaster 2000 and can in no way claim credit for this great creation of western culture.
A side story on this is quite funny. Shortly after this was coded I passed a copy to my girlfriend’s son who proceeded to really like it and obsessively play the sounds. This drove his sister nuts as you know it would most women as they do not share our masculine preoccupation with great farts and their high fidelity simulations.
